#1 A New Year

Just for fun 🙂 This is a personal blog where I hope to write about various things that interest me throughout the year. I have no specific content plans, I just want to see what unfolds as the days go by. Carnet, is French for notebook. 365 is the number of days in the year…

#236 Still sick 🤒

Mr Notebook has to go to work this morning and had left long before I got out of bed. I’d been up in the night with the youngest again who was really unwell. When I did get up I got showered and put on my pjs again. Feeling like crud doesn’t really do any justice…

#235 Night Off

I’m taking the night off because I’m feeling pretty unwell along with the rest of my family. Hopefully we will all be feeling better soon. I thought I’d done so well not getting the cold 😉 Ah well! Hope you are well and enjoying your weekend. xo My bedside table crammed with all the things.

#234 Kitchen Play

Today I woke up feeling even worse. While everyone else was still sleeping, I had coffee and showered. As I was pottering around in the kitchen, cleaning some shelves and organizing I decided to bake a cake. Well why not? With everybody feeling so yuck, some cake could be a good thing. I had a…

#233 Nothing to see here.

While everybody is feeling awful, including me, I’m making a list of things that might be fun to do when we are all feeling well again. During a conversation with a friend, I heard one of the kids mention their “Bucket List” so today I’m going to ask if he’d like to make a physical…

#232 New challenges

As what turns out to be a cold virus sweeps through our house, everyone is still busy doing all sorts of things. From watching Netflix, to pc and video games, books and movies, you name it we are probably doing it 🙂 None of this is unusual. Neither does it only happen when we are…

#231 Make Way!

The flu has arrived at my house đŸ˜Ļ I’m doing my best to keep everyone comfortable. The season is changing here too and there have been some very cold days. Having said that, Spring is definitely on the way. Wishing you health and happiness. xo

#230 Phew!

Now that I’m older, I wonder if time will ever slow down again. Why do the hours and days seem to pass so much more quickly? I made an easy dinner of Shepherds Pie, green beans and garlic bread. Everyone enjoyed it, that’s always good 😉 I’ve got that happy tired feeling and I’m here…

#229 Binge

It’s Saturday night and I have a date with Netflix 🙂 Season 7 of Orange is the new Black, here I come! xo (Uploaded/published late because I fell asleep) Photo credit to ShinyMofo Šī¸ used with permission 🙂

#228 Home Late

Tonight I’m writing late as we were invited out to a friends place for dinner. Everybody had a lovely time. It’s the first time we have visited these new friends. We were all pretty excited about going. Our kids had a new experience in saying grace before the meal that we all shared around the…

#227 See Through

This morning one of the kids (I’m going to have make pseudonyms) was looking up frogs online because he’d seen a video where the creator was discussing how if you search frogs in Google this one happy looking frog will always show up in the results fairly early on. He tried it and there was…
